This is a set of seven Ecu's that was originally issued by the International Currency Bureau to show what the new European Ecus were going to look like. Unfortunately, they decided to call the new coins Euros and not Ecus, but this set is still a very important part of our numismatic heritage.

Each set comes in a full colour presentation folder with seven different denominations. There is the full crown sized 5 Ecu plus the 1/10, 1/4 and 1/2 Ecu, plus the 1, 2, 5 and 10 Ecus as well. The presentation of this set is outstanding and it is something which you will be proud to have in your collection as well as giving them as gifts.

These are the coins that never were...

England 25 Ecu

In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency would be called the Ecu. Of course, they were wrong, it ended up being called Euro. Some privately issued patterns were struck, they are crownsized and contain the nominal value of 25 Ecus. You have St. George slaying the dragon on one side and Neptune and Europa on either side of a globe of the world with England below. The examples we have are those struck in brass, which is the scarcest metal they were struck in. These are full crownsized and Prooflike condition, you can add one to your collection for just a very reasonable price and remember that this metal is the scarcest of the lot.

Picture of Northern Ireland, 25 Ecu CN 1992

Northern Ireland, 25 Ecu CN 1992

In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency was going to be called the Ecu. So International Numismatic Agency (INA) made a private pattern Ecu to show what a Northern Ireland issue might look like, if it were ever issued, in other words a Patina. It is crownsized and struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel. On one side a woman playing the harp along with the denomination ‘Twenty-Five Ecu’ and the date 1992. The other side has a globe showing Europe with Neptune and Britannia on either side of the globe. The legend reads ‘Europe * Europa and N. Ireland’. These are now 27 years old and it has been quite sometime since we last offered them for sale. Just found a small group in one of vault rooms. If you collect Irish coins, Euro or Ecu coins, then this is the piece for you…

British Pattern Euro Proof Set 2003

Although we never joined the Euro, INA made up pattern Euro Proof Sets for many nations and the United Kingdom was one of them. It is a nine piece set from the 1 Cent size to the crownsized 5 Euro including two bi-metallic pieces. These follow the size and the metal as used on the actual Euro coins, that were issued of course. It has been sometime since we have been able to offer this collection, we think it fills in an important part of our numismatic heritage. You get the following sized coins: 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, 1 Euro, 2 Euro and crownsized 5 Euro all in brilliant proof condition. Each coin comes in an envelope in a bag. We got these sets from a dealer in Scotland who forgot he had them. Once these are gone that will be that... Remember you are getting 9 proof coins in your British Pattern Euro Proof Set...
